The image was first released on twitter as a gif, showing the light on the tree twinkling behind them.

The tweet read: "Just sharing the sweetest Christmas Card from our President and Vice-President, The Duke and Duchess of Sussex.

"Very Merry Christmas, everyone!"

They spent Thanksgiving in the United States with Meghan's mother Doria Ragland.

It was announced that they will not be joining the Royal Family at Sandringham on Christmas Day.
